Since childhood author Heather Buttivant has been drawn to the shoreline, to the rock pools and tidal spaces of our rocky coastline. To celebrate the launch of her book, Rock Pool Extraordinary Encounters Between the Tides Heather will give a talk on rock pools and the miniature worlds that exist in the pools, coves and shallows of our seashores.

Following the talk, she will lead us on a tour of the rock pools along the foreshore between Newlyn Art Gallery and Jubilee Pool.

Free, all welcome, U12s must be accompanied by an adult.


Rock Pool : Extraordinary Encounters Between the Tides
By Heather Buttivant

This is the story of a woman who couldn’t leave the sea, turning a childhood fascination into a career and a calling. A writer who has spent decades with her hands immersed in freezing water, waiting and observing, uncovering the extraordinary secrets of the small creatures who survive in the shifting sands and draining pools between the tides.

Copies will be available from the gallery shop, priced £14.99 and Heather  will be happy to sign your copy.

Heather Buttivant lives in Looe and is an award-winning blogger, writer, educationalist and environmental researcher.
